Verse 1
Beauty for brokenness 
Hope for despair 
Lord, in the suffering 
This is our prayer 
Bread for the children 
Justice, joy, peace 
Sunrise to sunset 
Your kingdom increase! 
 
Verse 2
Shelter for fragile lives 
Cures for their ills 
Work for the craftsman 
Trade for their skills 
Land for the dispossessed 
Rights for the weak 
Voices to plead the cause 
Of those who can't speak 
 
Chorus
God of the poor 
Friend of the weak 
Give us compassion we pray 
Melt our cold hearts 
Let tears fall like rain 
Come, change our love 
From a spark to a flame 
 
Verse 3
Refuge from cruel wars 
Havens from fear 
Cities for sanctuary 
Freedoms to share 
Peace to the killing-fields 
Scorched earth to green 
Christ for the bitterness 
His cross for the pain 
 
Chorus
God of the poor 
Friend of the weak 
Give us compassion we pray 
Melt our cold hearts 
Let tears fall like rain 
Come, change our love 
From a spark to a flame 
 
Verse 4
Rest for the ravaged earth 
Oceans and streams 
Plundered and poisoned 
Our future, our dreams 
Lord, end our madness 
Carelessness, greed 
Make us content with 
The things that we need 
 
Chorus
God of the poor 
Friend of the weak 
Give us compassion we pray 
Melt our cold hearts 
Let tears fall like rain 
Come, change our love 
From a spark to a flame 
 
Verse 5
Lighten our darkness 
Breathe on this flame 
Until your justice 
Burns brightly again 
Until the nations 
Learn of your ways 
Seek your salvation 
And bring you their praise 
 
Chorus
God of the poor 
Friend of the weak 
Give us compassion we pray 
Melt our cold hearts 
Let tears fall like rain 
Come, change our love 
From a spark to a flame
